Here are just some of my inspirational heroes and heroines:

Wayne Dyer – Wayne Dyer is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the fields of self-development and spiritual growth. He’s the author of over 40 books, including 20 New York Times bestsellers. He has created many audio and video programs, and has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows.  He also has 10 PBS Specials which have raised over $250 million dollars for public television.

Louise Hay – Dubbed “the closest thing to a living saint” by the Australian media, Louise Hay is also known as one of the founders of the self-help movement. Her first book, Heal Your Body, was published in 1976, long before it was fashionable to discuss the connection between the mind and body. Revised and expanded in 1988, this best-selling book introduced Louise’s concepts to people in 33 different countries and has been translated into 25 languages throughout the world.

Cheryl Richardson – For the last twenty years, Cheryl has dedicated my personal and professional life to the importance of self-care by teaching from her own experience.  In the past, she’s sacrificed her health and her relationships for work, given to others at the expense of her own needs, and watched her dreams slip through the cracks of a busy life.  As a result, she’s learned a lot about what it takes to put an end to the madness.  As she grows and evolves, she share the practical tools and resources she uses herself, in the hopes that it helps you to improve your own life.

Jason Womack – Jason W. Womack, MEd, MA sees the world differently. He doesn’t deny there are 24 hours in the day, but he defies low expectations for what can be accomplished in that time. He won’t refute that life is busy, but he refuses to compromise when it comes to increasing productivity and maximizing time for the things that are most important.  Jason focuses on creating ideas that matter. He strives to improve the way leaders think about implementing solutions. He focuses in on customizing each person’s productivity and create systems that are sustainable in everyday workflow.

Jodi Womack – Jodi Womack, founder of No More Nylons, is an entrepreneur, a speaker, a networker, and most importantly as a woman, a friendly and kind-hearted person. She plans networking events for women founded on friendship rather than competition. So many women can get wrapped up in the rat race but Jodi focuses on the human component–the essential desire we have as women for camaraderie and support.
